    I can play dvd's but not burnt games.

    I need some help. I have 4.2u system that i installed homebrew, homebrew browser, a few emmulators, and m-player. I have managed to play dvd's with no problem, but I can't seem to burn a game. I use Don't really need to mention this, OK then extract the iso to image burn and burn on a dvd+r disk at 2x speed. The system cannot recognize the disk though. I am pretty shure the softmod worked, but is there a way to test it? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Yea, use an app like usb loader gx and a flash drive/harddrive. You can rip youroriginal retail disk to the device.

    first, you should use dvd-r
    second you need a cIOS in order to run it

    but why don't you just get a hard drive?

    Ok so I should use dvd-r instead of dvd+r's. Sorry for my ignorance but what is an cios?
    I would like to just burn to disks and play in the wii instead of using flashdrives or harddrives. Is it possible??

    cIOS249 rev17 is the suggested version right now on wiihacks,
    try installing that and see if it works
    I would suggest using neogamma (if you're not already)
    you should only back up the games YOU OWN

    So even though I can read dvd's with m-player I still need this cios to read backup copies?

    Thanks guys for the great help in educating this noob a bit. I will try the suggestions tonight and hopefully all goes well. I will post back.

    Ohh one more silly question, I need to install cIOS249 rev17 and neo gamma right?? Or is this the same thing?

    One more thing, when I finished downloading my game iso, it is still a stack of books{xxx.iso} , does it need to be exracted further or can image burn use the file just like this?

    I will stop bumping my posts

    Please refrain from discussion of downloading.
